Come to Me, My Child … I’m Coming, Lord

I love You, Lord. I lift my voice to You in praise, I bow my knees in worship. I hear You calling, “Come to Me, My child,” and my heart responds, “I’m coming, Lord … I’m coming.”

Does My Heart Burn Within Me When You Pass By, Lord?

Lord, how often do You draw near and I don’t recognize Your presence? Does my heart burn within me? Does my spirit not give witness to You when You pass by?
